Play at Brewers Fayre, Great Park

As a kid I was big fan of The Beano which my Dad would bring home from work, often I could tell he’d already had a read. Dennis the Menace was one of my favourite characters in the comic, along with Minnie the Minx.

The Brewers Fayre have chosen Dennis the Menace as the theme for their play areas at their pub restaurants and we were invited along to the one in Great Park, Rednal to see.
The play area was not huge but it was big enough to keep my three children, aged 9, 8 and 4 years entertained for a good hour. They only came out for drinks. There were a lot of other children there but it wasn’t too overcrowded. My 9 year old has sensory issues and also has joint problems so we do tend to avoid soft play areas, or only spend a short time there as she gets frustrated. However, she seemed quite happy to play here and we are certain we will be visiting again. At just £3 per child for 90 minutes it’s pretty good value.
The Little Man had his photo taken with Dennis the Menace.
The play area has been newly refurbished and although we’d not visited before there was a lady there that I spoke to who said it was much better now.
After playing we had lunch in the restaurant.
While waiting for our food the kids had fun with the activity books and crayons provided. I love that restaurants do this. Not so long ago I remember carrying around my own books and pens to keep kids occupied, they just don’t understand that they have to sit and wait for their food. The time goes quickly if they are occupied.

The kids all chose pizza, I had a really delicious chicken tikka masala and the OH had sausage, egg, chips and beans.
For dessert, two of the kids had ice cream, one had a brownie with ice cream. I had apple pie with caramel and custard and the OH had Chocolate fudge cake with ice cream.
The kids meals are £3.99 for a main meal, £4.49 for two courses and £4.99 for three courses.
The adults meals vary in prices and there are often deals to be had when purchasing more than one meal. For example, you can get two main meals for £10, and two desserts for £2.50 between 12-5pm Monday to Friday.

We had a lovely time, the staff were very helpful and cheerful, it makes a difference when you get service with a smile. We will definitely be returning to this Brewers Fayre.

    We recently reviewed the Weymouth branch. The service and food was lovely. I love the idea of the soft play and it was really clean etc … but I really dislike having to pay £3 on top of buying meals. I have three children so an extra £9 before I've even started ordering food! I do think that it should be free or discounted if you are eating. I'd rather go somewhere with a garden and save some pennies!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
